What's your favorite science fiction novel?


Over the weekend, I re-read The Stainless Steel Rat, by Harry Harrison.


 
I first read this back in the mid 1970s, when I was a mere slip of a lad, but even after 35 years, I still remembered how much I liked the main character, James Boliver ("Slippery Jim") diGriz.

Even so, I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy reading it again, after all, you know how sometimes we remember things as being much better than they really were  the first time - I'm looking at you, Young Sherlock Holmes, but I found this as just funny and entertaining as it was the first time around. 

I have the next two Stainless Steel Rat books in my tbr (again) pile, as well as the nook version of the first installment of my other favorite Harrison series, Deathworld.  
 


How about you?
